The Chocolate Challenge
|Summary||A mobile exhibition to illustrate the careers in the field of technical process management|
|Customer||Brandwacht & Meyer, BrandBase|
|Components||Solid-state controllers, servo motors, several sensors such as a "colour tracking" camera and a precision scale, relays, network equipment.|
|Description|| The goal of the Chocolate Challenge is to separate a large bag of coloured "chocolates" in selected colours (in the exhibit, coloured marbles are used instead of chocolates) and fill bins with a preset amount of "chocolates". During the process, the two teams who run the challenge must monitor the feedback of the sensors and intervene on "incidents". |
The complete system consists of four consoles. We provided the electronics and electro-mechanics for this project. Each console contains a controller that drives servo motors and monitors several sensors. The controllers communicate with each other via a local network.
